My summer trip to Verona was a great combination of amazing views and amazing music!
Verona is the city of glorious medieval buildings and beautiful bridges. It has been named a UNESCO WORLD Heritage Site because of importance of many historical buildings. All those views amazed me, especially tiny streets which lead to a historic center and very beautiful “piazzas”. Sometimes sightseeing can become boring but it impossible to happen in Verona, you can feel the vibes of the city, its ambiance.
It’s really an incredible feeling when you’re exploring the city, first settlement of which probably dates back to the 1st century BC. It’s even difficult to imagine what happened back then on those streets, in those houses etc, which remain the same until nowadays.
Verona is famous for its Roman amphitheatre, the Arena, found in the city’s largest piazza, the Piazza Bra. It was completed around 30 AD. I was lucky to see this amazing Arena not only from outside, but also inside, attending the concert of legendary David Gilmour.
I was traveling to Verona in July, one of the hottest months there, so it was difficult to explore the city all day long, but it’s absolutely not a problem because you can take a break enjoying a cup of delicious cappuccino or a glass of Aperol Spritz and Italian ice-cream at one of those small and cozy cafes. By the way, once you try Italian ice-cream, you can’t stop eating it!
I will definitely come back to Verona once again!
